MILFORD - The community of Milford is coming together to support the family of Kevin and Brenda Tanski, who were hit by a car shortly after the recent blizzard.

Kevin and Brenda Tanski were walking on Bridgeport Avenue last week when they were hit by a car. The couple died from their injuries. Police say they were walking in the street because the sidewalks were blocked by snow.

Gary Johnson, who heads the United Way of Milford, says his office has received numerous calls from residents since the accident, wanting to know how they could help. A trust has been established to support the Tanskis' children.

A wake for the couple will be held tomorrow. The funeral will be Friday.
